Arik Keller and I had been thinking about what to do next and we both liked Groupon but wanted to marry that with location based services. So that is what we did.
We set out to build a Groupon clone but sprinkle in LBS. I was the CTO and built the technology and Arik did the hard part – everything else. We embarked on the journey in late 2009 and that journey came to a successful conclusion today. LocalGinger was sold to WHERE.COM. Woohoo!
